SkyStar Wheel Packs Up & Rolls out of Waterside District

The SkyStar, a 137-foot high observation wheel located next to Waterside District throughout the summer, has officially completed its stay in Norfolk.

With breathtaking views of the Elizabeth River, downtown Norfolk, and neighboring Portsmouth, SkyStar attracted tens of thousands of riders this summer. The 12-story wheel, equipped with 36 climate-controlled gondolas, opened at Waterside District in May and welcomed its last riders on Sunday, August 19.

Next, the wheel rolls to Ohio for a fall stay in Cincinnati overlooking Riverfront Park.
